Kathie J. Trees Kline died on Tuesday, July 6th, 2021. She died in her home, as was her wish, after a long and rough journey with COPD. She was surrounded and supported in her journey by close family who loved her very deeply. She is survived by her two daughters, Caitlin and Britt Kline. Kathie was sensitive, loving, witty, bright and compassionate - as well as "full of vinegar and storm" as her nephew so aptly phrased it. She made an impression on those she touched. May she rest in peace and freedom. We love you forever, Mama. In lieu of flowers, we ask that you please consider donating to our local Hospicare and Palliative Services of Tompkins County. Thank you. May all beings be safe. May all beings be healthy. May all beings be happy. May all beings be free of suffering and the roots of suffering. May all beings enjoy peace and freedom. So may it be. "
